Tiny Core VNC Geometry
« on: March 25, 2019, 04:43:04 PM »
I'm using ProxMox 5.3 and have managed to setup several TC VMs. I'm not doing anything exotic with the VMs. I am studying for a cert and am using TC to test basic network connectivity. All I want to do is to use a VNC viewer to connect to the GUIs of each system. ProxMox comes with a great VNC client, but it's a little clunky. I've installed xorg to make the GUI less clunky, but it leaves a lot to be desired. I went ahead and installed x0vncserver and I am able to use a varierty of viewers to access the desktop. The problem is, the VNC viewer on my client is way out of whack. Turbo VNC is telling me that the desktop is 1280X9216x24. When I try to adjust the geometry with, x11vnc -display :0 -many -geometry 1920x800x24, it has no affect on the VNC session. Any ideas how to fix this would be greatly appreciated

I'm not specialist in this area (if I'm wrong someone please correct me) but x11vnc is Remote Native X Display. This means that you can't easily change resolution because it's not virtual desktop that is created in computer's memory but real desktop created in hardware. You will be limited to resolutions that your hardware support, and you want

x11vnc is good for taking first steps in vnc environment, but It has its own limitations. Try to use other vnc servers.

x11vnc allows one to view remotely and interact with real X displays (i.e. a display corresponding to a physical monitor, keyboard, and mouse) with any VNC viewer. In this way it plays the role for Unix/X11 that WinVNC plays for Windows.
